Each week Sharon at Mom on Dealz brings you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal. The Summer Olympics began last week so here is a fun craft to introduce your kids to this special event!
If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page.
Olympic Ring Toss
- Toilet Paper Roll
- Paint (red, green, black, blue, yellow)
- Yellow and Orange Card Stock
2. Glue or tape the “flames” to a toilet paper roll.
3. Cut circles from card board (I used an empty diaper box so they are nice and sturdy.
4. Paint the circles red, green, black, blue, and yellow to represent the Olympic rings.
5. Watch your child have some fun with their new ring toss game!
- History/Social Studies: Discuss with your child the origin of the Olympics (Ancient Greece) and what the rings represent (different continents that participate in the games).
- Math: Make a graph of how many times your child makes a ring around the “torch” and how many times they don’t. You can also see if one color makes the toss more than another.
- Language Arts: Read the book G is for Gold Medal: An Olympics Alphabet (Sleeping Bear Press Sports & Hobbies)with your child and enjoy a “g” food while reading (grapes, goldfish, grape jelly on crackers, etc).
